Angelababy (楊穎) insists that her beauty is all-natural and not the result of plastic surgery.
The 25-year-old actress is suing a Mainland plastic surgery center, who claimed that Angelababy had gone under the knife. Angelababy is seeking an apology and 500,000 RMB for compensation.
According to Jaynestars, Angelababy’s photos as a teenager frequently circulate on the Internet and spark debate over her looks over the last decade.
Bothered by the gossip, Angelababy shared photos of her parents when they were young, indicating that her good looks were genetically inherited
However, her recent appearance in Mainland variety show Running Man <奔跑吧, 兄弟> caused viewers to question if her “unnaturally pointy chin” was real or the product of plastic surgery.
Angelababy’s manager, Kim, said the claims were defamatory and threatened to follow up with legal action.
Although Angelababy is known to be sensitive over plastic surgery claims, this did not stop a Mainland plastic surgery center from using her image on social networks to promote their business.
Angelababy felt that the content was misleadingly portrayed as factual, which damaged her public image and reputation.
After contacting the plastic surgery center without success and unable to stop the spread of the rumors on social networks, Angelababy filed her case at Beijing’s Chaoyang Court.
Angelababy is willing to undergo a medical examination at a court-appointed facility to prove that aside from an orthodontic treatment, she has not received plastic surgery on her chin or other parts of her face.
